Mezzotint an Image in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can add a mezzotint effect to an image in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
To begin, either create a new document or open an existing one. We've shown you how to do this in other tutorials. We have one open with one layer.
Move the mouse cursor to the layers on the bottom right. Make sure that the correct working layer is selected.
Click "Filter". It is in the navigation bar that runs along the top of the program.
Look at the preview in the new pop-up menu.
Click and drag to move the image around the preview area.
Click the minus sign in the bottom left corner to zoom out.
Click the plus sign next to the minus sign to zoom in.
Click the arrow next to the numerical percentage. This opens a menu, from which we can select a percentage to zoom to. We will select "100%" for this tutorial.
Click on the dropdown menu at the bottom of the pop-up window. The default setting is "Fine Dots".
Select the style of dots. For example, we can select "Medium Dots", "Grainy Dots", or "Coarse Dots", depending on the style we're going for.
Alternatively, change the pattern to something more linear and choose a style of lines. Options are "Short Lines", "Medium Lines", and "Long Lines".
Select the style of strokes if this is the preferred pattern. Again, we can choose "Short", "Medium" or "Long" strokes. We personally like the dots the best, maybe medium.
View the canvas. The changes have been applied.
